Agreed. It's a good thing our founding fathers weren't legalists or authoritarians.
I also agree with all your other points. We need to focus on violent criminals and leave everyone else alone. Until real crime (i.e. the kind where there is a victim) drops to zero, I don't think we should be going out of our way to arrest and prosecute harmless individuals. That being said, if you openly disobey the law then expect consequences.
I can't even walk back from a bar anymore. I almost got arrested last semester for stumbling home by myself. Yeah, I was drunk, but I am a responsible individual and I was doing the right thing--not driving. Since I can't drive, I can't bike (so dumb) and apparently I can't even walk home, what am I supposed to do?
